Activities, Beach, Biking, and Dining
Endless beaches greet spectacular sunsets on Nantucket's west end, about 8 miles from town. Whether you get there using the NRTA (Nantucket’s public transportation) or on a bike, the effort is well worth it. Madaket Beach has parking, lifeguards, and strong surf. The fishermen on the island have a long history of surfcasting from the shoreline. One of the absolute "must do's" during your Nantucket Vacation is to see the sunset in Madaket!
